HALLOWEEN SWAP

I joined my first Swap, must say I was rather tentative about doing so, there are so many talented ladies out there in blogland I did not want to dissappoint, but if you never try you never grow, so I went for it. OK, what paper to use, what stamp to use, what should the layout be, what embellishments should I use, did I use too many, did I not use enough and then there is the ribbon, Oh My! Thank you Kim for hosting this Swap. After all my treperdation I think the card came out rather cute. I wanted to decorate the inside. Well here is my card. I used by cuttlebug embossing template to emboss the background paper, my SU corner punch and embellished it with brads. My cute little pumpkin image is from Missy B collection and my bat and Sentiment is from CTMH.

Here is the inside of the card and a group photo of the Pumpkin Boys before they were mailed out.






Here are all the wonderful cards that I received in the swap, they are fantastic, I really enjoyed this and received such wonderful cards. I am ready for my next one.

WOW! I wish I had joined this swap! I think your card is perfect. Just perfect. Orange is my favorite color and you totally rocked it with the green PP and purple mat behind the pumpkin.
